It is time for back to school, but according to the National Retail Federation, the average family spends approximately $98 on school supplies. Each year, thousands of children return back to school unprepared and do not have the basic tools for school success.
For a family already struggling financially, the expense of adequately preparing children for the start of the school year can be a heavy burden. This is why the SIM Saint Louis August event is a Back-To-School Backpacks Drive.
Your Membership allows us to support getting 50 kids backpacks. We are asking for help stuffing them, though!
Join us Wednesday August 31, 2016 at World Wide Technology Soccer Park in Fenton for some give back and some fun!
From 6-7 Meet in the Parking Lot to Tailgate and stuff our 50 Backpacks. At 7pm, we’ll head in and watch an exciting game!
Our backpacks will include:
3 folders, 2 notebooks, a package of pencils
a package of markers, a pair of scissors, 2 glue sticks
a package of Post-its, 2 pens, a package of crayons
a pencil pouch with a ruler, eraser & pencil sharpener, all in a new basic backpack
So, if you want to bring additional supplies, those will be very welcome!
Please RSVP so we can ensure every one of our members attending has a ticket to the game. The first 24 to show up to stuff backpacks get to sit in the Heineken Corner Patio!
